While India's Independence Day is often celebrated with kites, the US celebrated with fireworks. How does each methods reflect its culture?

India's Killing Fireworks Factories

The implication that India does not use fireworks is false. They use them in their Festival of Lights. On top of that, a lot of these fireworks are made in sweat shops, by children.

I agree with Tabitha. This question feels more like an attempt to provoke people into slamming the US by making it seem that we Americans are more violent than the people of India. However, if you want to start a fight, maybe you'd better double check your facts.

Thanks! I'm sure that the responses were all supposed to be about how the US was so violent while India was so peaceful. The thing is, India is a melting pot, just like the US and it's dangerous to make generalities about either country.
